Caramelized Banana Soufflé

Soufflés are fun. They’re quick to make and are incredibly pretty when taken out of the oven. But then they deflate and disappoint you. So, if you like disappointment, soufflés are fun!

The thing with soufflés is that they are incredibly difficult to photograph. You’ve got less than two minutes from the time you take them out of the oven until they deflate. That’s why the soufflé in the photo isn’t very tall. When I first took it out of the oven, it was a couple of inches above the rim of the ramekin.

Candy Apples

I’m really excited. This Tuesday, October 23rd, is this blog’s one year anniversary. I think so at least. Yeah, I’m not really sure. Instead of opening the blog with one post, like most bloggers do, I thought it would be a good idea to already have some posts on the site before the big unveil. So, I opened IronWhisk with five posts on it already. I played around with the dates so they didn’t all seem to be written on the same day.

I ended up with about a month of content before I even told anyone about the website. While that appeared to be a good idea at the time, I now realize that it was a pretty bad one. I don’t know when I baked the first post. I don’t know when I wrote the first post. I don’t know when I published the first post. All I know is when I first told someone about the site. That was on October 23rd, 2011. So that’s what I’m celebrating. Not the first post but the great unveil.

Homemade S’mores

Well, it’s officially fall. I’m not a big fan of the time between fall and summer. In summer, it’s nice and warm. In fall, there are pretty leaves everywhere (let’s just say for the sake of argument that you don’t have to pick them up). However, between the two, it’s cold and disappointing. The leaves are green but it’s still too cold to walk around outside in a t-shirt. When it finally gets a bit warmer later in the day, it starts to rain. Then it’s cold again. It’s cold and it rains. In winter, at least, it snows. Simply put, boooooo.

Homemade s'mores with a fresh, homemade vanilla marshmallow, freshly baked cinnamon graham crackers, and rich, dark chocolate

There is a solution though to my woes. It’s homemade “s’mores” (abbreviation of “some mores”) made out of freshly baked cinnamon graham crackers, fluffy vanilla marshmallows, and rich, dark chocolate. Alright, hear me out. I understand that this might seem at first to be a jump in logic since s’mores don’t really have anything to do with the seasons or anything date-related, but they really are the solution.
